Critic Reviews

"Fans of Oprah Winfrey’s TV show, or more recently her two podcasts, will have this title on their playlist for months. She dips in and out of interview clips with trailblazers across various industries with her characteristic warmth, wit, and candor. Winfrey draws us close in this inspiring topical guide focused on self-motivation. We feel as though we are sitting in the living room with her and Deepak Chopra or any of the dozens of guests featured in snippets scattered throughout the listening experience. At times, the transition from one conversation to another can feel slightly jumpy, but those who favor nuggets of wisdom over breadth of discussion will appreciate the ground that she covers in 20-minute sections."

Worth listening to, over and over again

I just finished my first listen and the quote that stuck for me this time was - What you appreciate, appreciates for you - a simple way to explain the law of attraction. The book did have lot more to offer and I plan to hear it again and again.

Wonderful and inspiring!

Listening to the audiobook has been a truly wonderful experience, to hear the peace, tranquility, passion, conviction, love, hope and kindness in everyone’s voices as they share their experiences - including the narrator. Plenty of a-ha moment for me! 😁

Extremely insightful

I found the book so uplifting. Each “ah moment” I have personally tried to hang onto over the years is consolidated into one book. What is great is that your purpose is always evolving and not shaped into one thing. Oprah shares her personal experiences in each chapter it made the book relatable. It was a good touch to have short but insightful chapters. I liked the fact that numerous teachers were featured with the key take aways. I’m am listening to it again. Thank you for guiding me to the light when darkness was everywhere. This will become my go to book for clear understanding. Love, love, love! Read this book if you want quick guidelines on huge life lessons!

Very insightful and lighthearted.
I love how Oprah narrates the book. She makes it relatable and sounds possible.

I am inspired to achieve great things by first being then doing.

Thank you Oprah.

When Oprah said, “Epilogue,” my heart sank. “It’s over?!” I thought... There is so much insight in this book that it is clearly meant to be listened to over and over again. It’s true brilliance and ultimate truth.

Meaningful and thought-provoking.

I started reading this, but then switched over the the audio book. So glad I did! It’s one of the best books to listen to (rather than read) because of all the amazing authors included. It’s like a really, really good podcast. Will be listening to it again and again in the coming weeks. Thank you, Oprah. My path is made more clear!

Love this, but too much god nonsense

Love Oprah. Loved her last book (WIKFS). And I really enjoyed this book. My only critique is how much god bothering there is in this book. She uses clips of interviews from people she’s interviewed for her podcast. Including people like Joel Osteen, the super rich televangelist famed for his hatred of gays and his love of cold hard cash.

Re-hashing The Secret

Like most people, I have a great deal of respect and admiration for Oprah. There is no denying her empathy, determination, and her charisma. I expected this book to be filled with actionable advice or, at the very least, some ideas that might inspire and motivate me.
Nothing could be further from the truth, though: the book is basically a compilation of metaphysical platitudes in the voices of multiple celebrities, clipped from interviews Oprah did in the past. The old clichés like "everyone has a God-given gift", "God gave us all a purpose" and, of course "put something out into the universe and the universe will reciprocate".
This is exactly the same as "The Secret" and these books have nothing to offer to someone like me.
I expected real advice from an successful and charismatic person that is greatly respected around world, instead I got 3 hours of soundbites and superstitious nonsense.

not life changing but ok

Some parts of the book were more interesting than others... mainly those in the final chapter. There are quite a few references to God so if you're an atheist like me... it was a bit of a turn off. It also jumps around a lot with different people providing their views.

More interviews than I was expecting

This book is a collection of Interviews Orpah has had with people. it is largely based around religious views. I still enjoyed it but it didn't benefit me like I thought it would. Some very good points were made and I had a few 'Aha' moments.

As a long-time Oprah-rian some of these stories I’d heard before. But they are no less poignant every time I hear them. I needed to hear them again today and I will listen and be just as moved by them again tomorrow. Thank you for another book of wisdom.
